Just got my new Sidi Vortice boots in the mail! Im excited. I got a fantastic deal from fc-moto.com. They are based In Germany I believe. The exchange rate was very favorable to the dollar so I got these boots for $350 with free shipping. A great deal considering they are $500 here in the states. Now the only draw back was the length of time for shipping. It took a total of about 38 days to get to me but again it was free shipping. I half expexted it to arrived looking like it was run over by a semi but it was just fine. They do offer faster shipping with fedex for another $45 I think if you want. I needed a new pair this year anyway and was going to buy a pair of Sidi vertigo's to replace the ones I have now. They lasted me about 9 years but I have worn them out and really needed a new pair. I would have paid about #325 for those here in the states but when I came across this website and saw the price on the vortice boots I couldnt resist. I never thought I would be able to get these boots because of the expense. They are the very top of the line and are really fantastic boots. I love Sidi boots anyway and wouldnt own any other kind. Thought I would pass the website along in case anyone is looking to make a purchase.
